Let's gets started!

Performance Specifications

A new and improved best-in-class1 3.6-L Pentastar® 6-cylinder engine is standardly included in the 2018 Ram 1500. This engine comes paired with a standard 8-speed automatic 845RE transmission and rear-wheel drivetrain. This mechanical configuration gets an improved EPA-estimated gas mileage of 17 city/25 highway2.

The new Ram 1500 has two other available engines: a 3.0-L EcoDiesel V6 engine and a 5.7-L HEMI® V8 engine. The 3.0-L EcoDiesel offers a best-in-class3 EPA-estimated 29 highway MPG. The 5.7-L HEMI® engine, on the other hand, specializes in power with a standard horsepower of 395 and a torque of 410 lb-ft.

Towing Capabilities

When equipped with the 5.7-L HEMI® V8 engine, the 2018 Ram 1500's standard TorqueFlite® 8 eight-speed automatic transmission, and the available Active-Level™ Four-Corner air suspension, this truck's capabilities seem limitless. This configuration allows for the Ram 1500 to tow a monstrous maximum capacity of 10,620 pounds.

The advanced Active-Level™ Four-Corner air suspension makes towing that much a breeze. This system is comprised of adjustable air springs, dashboard control that allow the driver to manually adjust to five different ride height settings, and smart sensors that lower the truck automatically when traveling at high speeds. This system smartly reduces drag while increasing efficiency and control while towing.

Additionally, in this truck, you'll be able to standardly enjoy hill start assist, trailer sway control, and integrated trailer hitch. The later allows for seamless connectability while hitching your trailer to the truck. Worry less about hitch security and faulty bumper integration.

Available Advanced Uconnect® 4C

The interior of the 2018 Ram 1500 takes the technology of the preceding model and raises the bar. Available in this truck is the upgraded largest-in-class1 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment center.

This system allows you to access all facets of your smartphone through Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® support while it uses satellite connection to provide step-by-step directions to wherever you need to go. Even when your vehicle is not on, this infotainment center has your back.
